Meredith Attwell Baker, the presumptive fifth member of the Federal Communications Commission, will bring almost unprecedented connections to the consumer electronics industry. If, as expected, President Obama appoints Baker to a Republican seat on the FCC, Baker will bring her experience in handling the digital TV transition during the past two years when she served as Acting Administrator of the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) at the Commerce Department. In that role, she dealt extensively with consumer electronics makers and lobbyists in crafting the DTV transition policy, including deployment of the $40 coupon program.
With the final DTV transition just over a month away, the FCC has unveiled a new and improved Web site to make the transition easier for consumers.
